It can only get worse. I just negotiated a public school teacher
contract. The teachers - like most public employees - had an employer-paid
benefit. In the last 5 years the cost of that benefit increased 18% PER
YEAR. We demanded - and got - a universal co-pay. Some teachers are upset
because of their 10% co-pay. I'm not in a union. For my wife and me, I
pay the equivalent of that 10% annual payment EVERY MONTH.
